Flux Capacitor Alarm Clock

0 153 Medium

Here it is ! The flux capacitor from back to the Future (more square).

It's an alarm clock and once the alarm goes off, it randomly plays sounds from the BTTF soundtrack.

I provide everything to make it.

 

How to use:

· Setup/Stop button: Set the alarm time· hour + minute button: activate or deactivate the alarm ("0" alarm off, "1" alarm on) 

When the alarm is rigging

· hour or minute button: snooze 5 minutes (time can be modified in the code)· Setup/Stop button: stop the alarm 

Special feature

· hour + minute button then hold the hour button until the feature starts. 

Enjoy !

Step 2: Painting

 

Painting

 

Paint the following parts:

FLUX_CAPACITOR_BACK_COVER

FLUX_CAPACITOR_BOX

FLUX_CAPACITOR_COIL_1,2 and 3

FLUX_CAPACITOR_DISPLAY_FRAME

 

Step 3: Soldering RGB Led

 

 

Just slide the led inside the part.

You have to put the "IN" toward the outside.

Solder the 3 RGB together (see wiring diagram).

 

Step 4: Assemble the Coils and Diffusors

 

 

You'll see that I've put numbers on the coals, the "1" will be on the up left, the "2" right, the "3" down.

Glue the coals, the diffusors on the plate.

 

Step 5: Solder the Display

 

Solder the Display

 

Solder four wires to the display.

 

Step 6: Solder MP3 Player

 

 

Solder the wires to the DFplayer and connect the speaker.

 

Step 7: Solder the Buttons

 

 

Solder the wires to the "Hour" "Minute" "Setup/Stop" buttons.

The wires (yellow and orange) have to be connected to the ESP32 first.

 

Step 8: Set the Plexi

 

 

Set the plexi in place.

 

Step 9: Set the Display

 

 

Step 10: Setup/stop Button

 

 

Screw the "setup/stop" button.

 

Step 11: Display Frame

 

 

Put the display frame on the display

 

Step 12: The Seal

 

 

Glue the seal on the box.

 

Step 13: Solder Wires

 

 

Solder the wires 32 and 33.

These will be used to connect the buttons "Hour" and "Minute"

 

Step 14: Solder the RGB Led

 

 

Solder the "IN" of the first RGB led to the "4" output of the ESP32.

 

Step 15: Place the Led Plate

 

 

You'll see some little lugs.

All you have to do is spread the case a little to place the plate.

 

Step 16: Buttons Hour and Minute

 

 

Screw the "hour" and "minute" buttons.

Solder the wires 32 and 33 to the "NO" pins of the buttons.

 

Step 17: Connect MP3 Player

 

 

Solder the wires of the MP3 Player to the 17 and 16 pins of the esp32.

 

Step 18: Solder the Display and Setup/stop Button

 

 

Step 19: Set the Speaker

 

 

Set the speaker in the back plate.

 

Step 20: VCC and GND

 

 

I used WAGO terminals to connect every 5v/VCC together and every GND together.

 

Step 21: Send the Code

 

 

You'll see the codes here : https://github.com/jejelinge/FLUX_CAPACITOR

Use the one you want.

Step 23: Labels

 

 

I printed the labels on self-adhesive paper.
